No , unless you had done gross criminal acts
3. Do ineed go back to my home contry first?and how long is good time i can come back visiting my husband here?

You have to go to ICA get LTSVP then surrender WP. From memory no need to go back unless the rules has changed. You have to bring previous LTSVP docs
4. How long the proces canceling my WP?

Instant !!

Thanks in advance

I assume you are local.
If you have aprroval to get married with the wife,then get ROM in SG.She surrenders her WP when her LTSVP approves, If not approves , she still has to surrender her WP once expired and have 7 days , I think, to hentak kaki, out of Changi
SO which is which gf or wife ? Partner or friend ?

Thanks for the reply mad scientist...

My husband is SPR and i dont have crime, i resign because the enviroment only.
I still have questions:

1. I thought at first my company must cancel my WP and after that i can apply LTVP to ICA again?

2. My friend have simillar problem with like me. She's On LTPV before (7 month) and get a job (WP) but after 3 weeks work she found out shes pregnant and resign from her company (her husband is SPR)
Is she will be in trouble if she apply again LTVP? And will singapore baned her for entering singapore? Because she read WP holder cannot be pregnant and many WP baned from entering this country.

Thanks in advance :)

Yes, your company must cancel WP but since you are previously on lTSVP go to ICA for more clarification. From memory you can do this once you resign and surrender the WP pass.You are on LTSVP before hence there is no major drama

2. My friend have simillar problem with like me. She's On LTPV before (7 month) and get a job (WP) but after 3 weeks work she found out shes pregnant and resign from her company (her husband is SPR)

Big Difference with what she read. WP holder cannot marry local or SPR unless written approval from MOM. Once you have tick all the boxes will be a breeze

Thanks in advance :)

My company already cancel my WP for me beforE i can apply SVP/LTVP to ICA. My company said they applying me special pass but within 7 days i must get SVP and they said i cannot leave singapore.
My question is is that true MOM have "special pass" for 7 days but i cannot leave singapore?
Can i get SVP if i apply to ICA with that special pass. The problem is they already cancel my WP but they said still wait the progress for my special pass..
Now im very confused and scared...

When they cancel your WP, MOM will give you a 30-day (correct me if I'm wrong) SVP from the date of cancellation. If that's the special one they are talking about. It is in the form of white paper which you must present to immigration on your first trip out of your country after your WP is cancelled. You should get it from your former employer.

Edit: Thanks for correcting on 7-day part SMS.

The special pass is for 7 days and should be printed out the same day as the WP is cancelled. WP holders must return to their country of origin and cannot apply for any other passes once the WP is cancelled.

You need to go to your employer and get the 7 day special pass quickly, before you end up overstaying your visa and getting in trouble for that. You can leave the country the day you receive the 7 day visa if you want. If the employer is not cooperating, go to MOM and explain this to them and they will print out the pass for you.

You cannot get SVP with the special pass, you have to leave the country as an ex WP holder.

Go to MOM on Havelock road. Tell them the employer is dicking you around. Also tell the Employer you are going to MOM on Monday morning to find out why you have not received the special pass because the employer is supposed to print it out when the cancel the WP which they do on WPOL.

BullSH*T. At the time the WP is canceled on WPOL, the Special Pass is automatic upon cancellation. The HR should have just printed out the Special 7 day Pass the day the WP was Canceled.

Do you know for a fact that the WP was cancelled? If so, march straight down to MOM and tell them the the employer is screwing you around. Don't wait. If you want, you can call the employer to tell them you are already on your way to MOM.
